some exciting news! 41

Hi there! Just wanted to share some exciting news in my crafting world :) I've always said that getting my projects published is like winning the paper crafting lottery! I am so honored and thrilled to have been recently invited to contribute to the awesome Practical Publishing Simply Cards & papercraft magazine Issue 105 which is jam packed with inspiration from crafters around the world! The featured topic was "Get on trend" ~ I was asked what did I foresee as three trends for 2013 in the papercrafting industry.
The three trends I foresee holding strong are as follows:
1) Vintage ~ the sample below features MFT stamps, Die-namics dies along with Webster's Pages patterned papers:
2) Spritz, Sprays and Mists ~ the sample below features MFT stampsDie-namics dies along with Pink Paislee patterned paper and heidi Swapp Color Shine:
3) Resin Embellishments ~ the card below features MFT stampsDie-namics dies along with Melissa Frances patterned paper and resin embellishment.
After spending the past weekend at CHA with Scott, several members of the MFT family and other papercrafting friends, I think I may have hit the trendy nail on the head! :) Many thanks for stopping by and I hope you check out the latest issue of Simply Cards & papercraft magazine!
